Back by popular demand, Summer School offers exciting creative briefs inspired by 2018 trend reports from the fabulous top trend forecasting websites Patternbank and WGSN! It also offers an amazing chance to get your work published, and comes with awesome bonus materials, fun tasks, great prizes, and lots of surprises!

Summer School 2017 is a 4-week online design event running from July 31 – 25 August. It’s aimed at designers who want to fill their summer with inspiration and creativity.

There are three tracks to choose from – Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced - they are an ideal platform to learn how to design to a Spring / Summer 2018 trend-inspired brief, to connect with other designers around the world, to grow your portfolio, and to win prizes! Please feel free to sign up for one or more options and use this opportunity to stretch yourself, meet other creative, experience working to a brief, expand your portfolio, and even get your work published!

Each track is priced at £20 (bundle deals are available for multiple tracks: £35 for two tracks and £45 for all three tracks) and registration includes:
Two creative briefs* (weeks 1 & 3 per track)
Two fun design challenges (weeks 2 & 4 per track) Downloadable bonus material including colour palettes, room stock images, wall papers and textures depending on the track

Chance to win a free place on our acclaimed online course The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design.
There are also unique opportunities to have your work published in the Surface Pattern Design Lookbook Vol 4, MOYO magazine and across the MIID network.
Last month we were so excited to share the ‘The Surface Pattern Design Lookbook – Volume 3’ – an amazing collection of designs curated from the Make it in Design Summer School 2016!
Last year we provided a summer of fun with six detailed design briefs for our students to create to and we we’re absolutely blown away by the submissions! So much so that we just had to share them. We were joined by hundreds of people from over thirty countries as they designed to a variety of trends from pop art to summer botanicals.
So as a celebration and thank you to the wonderful work produced here is ‘The Surface Pattern Design Lookbook – Volume 3’!  You can view a selection of the pages below or click here to view the lookbook on Issu.
